“Bad men cannot make good citizens.
It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.
A vitiated [debased - ed.] state of morals,
a corrupted public conscience is incompatible with freedom
[FREEeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-----------DOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - ed.].
No free government or the blessings of liberty can be preserved to any people
but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue;
and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles [sound doctrine - ed.].”
– Patrick Henry
There is no fear of God in the land.
The twin false doctrines of “once saved, always saved”
and “it’s hard to lose one’s salvation”
have destroyed America.
Here come the chains!
– Jeff Fenske
